Spiritual Health Care Week

The Hon Cameron Friesen , Minister of Health, Active Living, and Seniors, has declared the week of October 15 to October 21 as SPIRITUAL HEALTH CARE WEEK.   We would like to take this opportunity to celebrate the very important contributions of The Simkin Centre’s Spiritual Health Care Team in meeting the spiritual health needs of our residents, family members, and staff.

Spiritual Health Care Week 2018

Forever Love

Forever Love!! A couple of weeks ago we all attended a wedding. A triple wedding. A renewing of vows. We currently have 3 couples living at the Simkin Centre, Selma and Harold Smordin, Shirley and David Permack, and Bernice and Allan Walder. Barb Findlay from our Spiritual Health Department performed the ceremony. All the couples said that they would marry their partner again! Cake, cheese, crackers and beverages were served. We hope you will enjoy the pictures.

Apple Pie

Preparing apples for applie pie. Nothing beats the smell of apple pie in the oven. Cathy from Therapeutic Recreation on Simkin 2 worked with staff, companions and residents to create such a smell. It was wonderful.
